Haven't had anything bad here. Even burgers are fantastic. My husband always gets grilled tuna. It tastes like a steak. I usually get grilled shrimp or bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. Both are fantastic. You won't be disappointed.

Our family of 5 visited Dewey Destin Seafood overlooking Crab Island in mid July, 2014. The atmosphere is worth the trip alone. We enjoyed fresh seafood and wonderful views. While it isn't the top notch seafood restaurant of Destin, it was a wonderful place to enjoy the evening with a rustic feeling dining area on two piers that stretch into... More

My wife and I visited Dewey Destin Dockside again as our favorite place for seafood in Destin. As usual it was outstanding. I had the fried shrimp basket and my wife the red snapper. It is so good we always go our first night in town and our last night in town. Definitely worth a visit.

I had the Mahi Parmesan, and it was the best seafood I've ever had. Their prices were fair when compared to other Destin restaurants. I would go back there for sure.

Restaurant Is not kid friendly.....we waited an hour and a half for table to be ready......which is normal in Destin for the month of July .....while waiting ......we noticed all families with children were also waiting.....they prefer to seat larger groups and adults first over families with children....doesn't matter who arrives first or not........needless to say all families with children...

There are two Dewey Destin restaurants. This one is off Calhoun Street and is on the water. It is a fairly small place, very casual, which I love. People in shorts, bathing suits - etc - enjoying the beach and water. We had lunch, and got there at a pretty good time. We did not have a wait. We sat... More

This place was highly recommended by the concierge at the resort we were staying at. Dewey Destin's does live up to the hype. You know the food must be good, when on a Thursday night they tell you that the wait is 2 hours. Fortunately we only had to wait about half that time. The restaurant has a very casual... More

Dewey Destin's has two locations. I tried the location off Calhoun St., which is on the water and looks to the west toward Crab Island. The atmosphere was great, outdoor tables and the sun setting in the background. What isn't so great is waiting in a long line to order and then standing on the deck waiting for other diners... More

Had heard so many good things about this place from friends and was so excited about going here. Went for lunch before we registered for our resort. Had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Went up to the outside deck and what a view. Ordered from the lunch menu but was really disappointed when food arrived. Shrimp were... More

We recently ate here for lunch on vacation. We chose to set outside and had a great view. The restaurant seems a little run down and needs to be cleaned up a bit. The food was great especially the Hushpuppies. We all got something off the lunch special menu and the portion sizes were generous. It was my daughters favorite... More
